What are you typically doing on a Wednesday at 3 p.m.? Having coffee, hard at work, having a life changing experience? Wednesday 3 p.m. is the title of our series of short stories on KCRW Berlin.These short essays from different writers in different places magnify the ordinary and capture intimate observations, memories, encounters that connect us, at least for a short time.
Who would have thought a year ago that we would be where we are now? The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much: our vocabulary, the way we interact and so many other aspects of our daily lives. But occasionally, there is a sunny side to these challenging times, as captured by three different writers.
How people interact with the world can sometimes be so subtle and produce exciting memories. Those interactions can be with people or often animals. Coming up are three reflections on close encounters from L.A., Coney Island and Berlin.
Introducing Wednesday, 3 p.m.
Travel with us to a quiet street in East Berlin, the desert in Southern California, and an empty cantina in Wales.
